Ashburn Low Back Pain May Be Relieved with Care of the Diaphragm

The diaphragm and back pain. What is the link? Curious! Researchers have been describing how manipulation has an effect on the diaphragm and its ability to have some bearing on and improve non-specific back pain. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn includes this data into its Ashburn chiropractic treatment plan to reduce Ashburn non-specific low back pain.

NON-SPECIFIC LOW BACK PAIN

Chronic non-specific low back pain is back pain that’s been annoying for more than three months and does not appear to have an exact cause. Usual care is education and reassurance, analgesic medications, and non-pharmacological therapies. Formal medical care is not typically required though imaging, opioids and surgery are often overused. (1) Visceral fascial limitations, restrictions of the deep fibrous connective tissues enclosing muscles, bones, nerves, arteries and veins), may cause pain in the lumbar spine. Treating patients who have non-specific low back pain with manipulation and exercise may help. (2) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn sees Ashburn low back pain patients with this type of condition. This type of pain is many times annoying for patients, and Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn can often help.

Ashburn CHIROPRACTIC CARE OF NON-SPECIFIC LOW BACK PAIN

An effective approach chiropractic’s collegial profession of osteopathy utilizes and publishes cases and explanations of its success in reducing non-specific low back pain is taking care of the diaphragm, that dome-shaped muscular structure that divides the thoracic (chest) and abdominal areas of the body. The diaphragm starts along the lumbar vertebrae of the spine and connects to the lower ribs. (3) It moves when we breathe. Stretching the diaphragm significantly improves cervical spine extension, right and left cervical spine flexion, flexibility of the posterior chain (the muscles of the back part of the body) and ribcage movement at the xiphoid level (the bottom tip of the chest’s sternum). (4) Using manipulation and treating the diaphragm produced significant reduction in pain and disability for patients with non-specific chronic low back pain. (5) Treating the thoracic spine (mid-back) with mobilization in combination with treatment of the low back specifically and breathing exercises for non-specific chronic low back pain improves respiration and reduces disability for these patients. (6) Such improvements are most welcomed by sufferers with Ashburn non-specific low back pain.
